    Fortran, yep that's still the language of the future, I hear! And I can't wait until we get that teletype interface that was promised back in '54.

    Good one TJ!

    Thanks for the reminder TJ,

    Fortran......to think that in 82' I was learning that, along with COBOL and RPG.

    That printer looks similar to one I was using at TCI Cable in 84', but like CDC says, not sure about that giant wheel.

    I want that too, love to drive while working. Just turn the wheel "login" turn the other way "logout".

    I know what it is, that's it, hey it could be the mouse.

    How about Husband comes home saying Honey we are moving to a new place, planning to buy a new pc.

    It might be fake, but it's still fun.
